i ordered a Makita 2501 petrol blower to replace a electric corded model and it is suprisingly quieter! A bit fiddly to get the blower attachment on but it's no fault of the design, it's one of those things, if you had to do it again it would be simple. The machine had oil and just needed fuel, pulled on the cord a couple of times and it started like a dream. i'm left handed which works to my advantage but if you hold it in your right hand it sucks up against your trouser leg. I took the shoulder strap of my old machine as although this machine is light is can get heavy after a few minutes. Theres enough power to blow away wet leaves even the tiny bits between the driveway slabs, although i'm one of those who likes more power!
